Mangos are Back!

22 May

Finally, after a loooong wait, i can see the “food event” i was waiting for coming. Mangos are back in the fruit shops. One thing that really differs here from home is that i only buy fruits from fruit shops and thus i follow the fruit seasons (of Taiwan, because at home i never find strawberries in winter, even if it’s imported). So mangos, dragon fruits, persimmons disapeared last year without a word, and i was pretty excited to see the mangos back. Dragon fruits are usually in mid-june, as for presimmons, i’m not sure yet.

So, i was so happy that i bought 3 types of mangos: the green and small one (size of an apple), the red one from Taiwan (twice bigger than the green one), and my fav that you can find in Thaïland as well, the yellow one (twice bigger than the red one).

The green one has the stronger flavor, it’s also the less sweet one, followed by the red and the yellow, that doesn’t taste like mango as well. I still haven’t found the type of mango that we have at home and that i dislike as it’s even less sweeter than the green one.
